Volunteer of the Quarter Announced--Lynn Rice

Lynn has been an active volunteer since the day she volunteered for Katrina. Shortly thereafter, in 2006, she became a Disaster Action Team (DAT) Team Leader. She quickly assumed the role of “acting” coordinator when the coordinator at that time was deployed for many months. By January 2007, Lynn had become the official coordinator for both Dallas East and Dallas West disaster action teams.

Since becoming the disaster action team coordinator, Lynn has mentored more than 50 of the Dallas Area Chapter's most active and extraordinary volunteers as well as many of the up and coming team members.

She is also an instructor and encourages others to participate in other activities such as shelter operations, casework and disaster assessment.

Lynn truly has a desire to succeed because she enjoys volunteering, helping her community, making new friends and seeing teamwork actually come to fruition when it appears to be a daunting task ahead. Her persistence and perseverance has shown that even a team of only 17 could grow into a powerhouse of 44, including some of the strongest team leaders in the Chapter!

Lynn truly makes working at the American Red Cross—Dallas Area Chapter a pleasure because of her dedication and commitment to her community and the organization.

Congratulations and Thank You Lynn!
